AUX B

Posted by Mikers On April - 26 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Ok, so this isn’t actually a music making app, but I still think it’s a unique idea to promote an event.

screen480x480 (1)At the B-Sides Music Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland tons of audio equipment is connected with cables. If only one of these cables is not plugged in correctly, the loudspeakers remain silent.

In AUX B you are tasked with connecting the right cables. Bring the music through the different components to the loudspeaker to make it to the next level. If you complete all 80 levels until 15 May 2015, you have the chance of winning 1 of 3 festival tickets for the B-Sides Music Festival.

You can also use the built in headset microphone. Guitarists can use the effects live by connecting the output of their audio interface to an amp.

FM4 Lite

Posted by Mikers On February - 14 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (4)FM4 is a four operator FM synthesizer for iPad.

The lite version is fully functional except for the following limitations:

– MIDI is disabled
– Inter-app Audio is disabled
– Audiobus is disabled
– Saving is disabled
– Only 40 factory presets are included

Features:

– Four operators configurable in eight different routings
– Three sound engines modelled on 1980s hardware units
– Eight waveforms derived from classic FM synths
– 2x, 3x, and 4x polyphonic unison
– Tempo-syncable arpeggiator with up, down, up-down, and random patterns
– Microtuning with eight different temperaments
– Up to 24 voices of polyphony

Modelled on the popular DX series from the 1980s FM4 provides the same gritty sound, with a modern interface, and without being bound by the limitations of the original units.

Every aspect of the hardware — from envelope curves to sine-table sizes and quantisation errors to digital-to-analogue converters — has been meticulously analysed, in order to recreate the raw and dirty sound of the original units.

The interface has been carefully thought-out and is simple and intuitive, yet powerful — with every parameter being available on a single page. No menus, tabs, or jumping from page to page.

FM4 is capable of producing a multitude of sounds, ranging from punchy basses, crystal-clear bells, and lush pads, to organic textures, striking drums, and piercing leads.

All product names used are trademarks of their respective owners, and reference to these here in no way constitutes an association or affiliation with Primal Audio. All trademarks are solely used to identify the products whose sound was studied during the development of FM4.

MonoStereo Synthesizer

Posted by Mikers On February - 5 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480MonoStereo Synthesizer is a free full-featured analog mono synth with oscillator panning.

Why another mono synth?
Well, because I thought it would be fun to make one! This one does have one thing you rarely find, and that’s oscillator panning. With this you can create some nice effects using an LFO for the pan and also create wide stereo lead sounds easily!

The synth is completely free with no in-apps. If you feel the need to pay something for it, go see a gig by a local band! If that doesn’t cover it, buy their t-shirt! (or their CD if you have one of those CD-players we used to have 3 years ago)

Features:
* Minimalistic size, fast loading time and CoreMIDI Support!
* 3 Oscillators with customisable waveform (sine, square, saw), phase, level, detune and pan
* Lowpass and Highpass filters
* 2 LFO’s with customisable targets from filter values to oscillator panning and detune
* Filter and Amp Envelopes
* Portamento (almost named that ‘Glide’ but came to my senses. Portamento is portamento!)
* Delay and Chorus effects (very basic, I know)
* A few presets
* Saving and loading your own sounds
* Virtual keyboard

What’s New in Version 1.1

- New completely updated interface!
* All sliders replaced with knobs
* New visual style
* Smaller version of the keyboard available always at the bottom of the screen!
